Apply MAGNAT Style Acrylic Primer once on the even and smooth coat.
Apply uniform and smooth first coat of MAGNAT Style Venetian Stucco coloured with desired MAGNAT Style Colouring Pigment using the Venetian float on a dry surface after priming.
Apply next coat of Venetian Stucco after approx. 12 hours in small fragments. Take off the excess of the product by drawing the clean edge of the float over the surface.
When the second coat is dry (after approx. 6 hours), apply the third, thinnest layer of plaster. Remember that the thickness of the three coats of stucco should not exceed 1 mm.
After 2 hours from the end of application of the last layer use the float’s edge to smooth out the whole surface to achieve a gloss effect.
When the 3rd layer of stucco has dried, apply the MAGNAT Style Wax and then polish the surface with soft material or a Venetian float. This will provide additional protection and highlight the final effect.
